Mass Spectrometry Resource Guide 

Enhanced insights into compositional characterization of analytes 

Mass spectrometers are essential for compositional analysis in various fields of research including analytical chemistry, environmental analysis, forensics, and pharma, to name a few. As tools, mass spectrometers can help identify unknown compounds via molecular weight determination for both pure samples and complex mixtures.  Depending on the sample type, the resolution, and the speed of analysis required, users may lean toward different configurations of mass spectrometers.
